My daughter has been abused and violently acting out for 2 years. Mother has caught me on therapy and anything to help. In Oct got temporary full physical custody. Last week mother was order to start family therapy I was told I could be involved. I was unable to start therapy for my daughter die to mother refusing to consent. Would the mother need my consent to take her to a different therapist for family therapy
The answer depends on what the order specifically says, and the type of decision-making that the court awarded. If you have joint decision-making, then yes, you both need to agree on the therapist. If you cannot agree, you will need to file a motion with the court to get one appointed by the court. Additionally, if the court appointed a therapist in the order for family therapy, that therapist will need to be used.
